Armageddon Alien-II G7 review
Wednesday, November 07, 2012



I bought this mouse couple of days ago from challenger. Costs SGD 49.

Just because I'm sick of my wireless gaming mouse that I bought on whim some months ago. I realized that, if I wanted to play a game without dying for no reason, then I definitely need a wired mouse.

Specifications

7  macro-able button gaming class optical mouse
On-the-fly adjustable CPI button: 400/ 800/1600/3200cpi
 64kB dedicated memory
500Hz polling/second
Frame rate: 3600fps
Optical sensor: PAN 3305
Acceleration: 30G
Up to 130 inches per second

The main thing is that the sensitivity goes up to 3200dpi*, and the polling rate actually reaches 1000hz rather than 500hz.
CPI (Counts per inch) = DPI (Dots per inch)

One very important thing (to me) is that the wire is braided, which increases the durability by leaps and bounds. The surface is actually made of soft plastic which is comfortable to touch. It feels similar to Razer's "rubberized" plastic, just a little smoother, which is the way I prefer. This is actually quite big mouse, it may not seem so at first look, but it fits my huge hands comfortably and I actually enjoy using it.

Why did I choose this mouse over a "traditional" razer gaming mouse? Well... probably because I've been using razer since it's inception, and their hardware does come at a premium price. Armageddon is actually powered by PowerLogic, which isn't a brand particularly known for their quality. That said, I thought it wouldn't hurt to try a new brand since it seems to be a very decent mouse. They had one on display and I could put my hands on it.

The only bad thing about this mouse is that Windows doesn't seem to remember the setting of "Enhance pointer precision". It's a hassle but it's something that I can live with.



Overall it is a great mouse and I would recommend people to consider it as an alternative over Razer mice, or Steelseries for that matter.

Hi,

Can you turn off the blue LED at all times?

During PC standby (windows screen enter password page), is the blue LED lighted up?

Thanks. This is important to me as I used to have a mouse that LED is always on and I cannot sleep.

How is your mouse now after using 1 year+?

Thanks

@anonymous nope you can't turn it off. it annoys me quite a bit as well. and it's still working fine. I'm surprised it has been a year.

You can turn off the lights... need to have the mouse software installed though.
